However, it is individuals like you who practice rational thinking, that define the future of humanity. The only purpose that the religious fanatics quite unintentionally serve is to add importance to the civilised human mental faculties of reasoning and rational thinking. The point is, the pursuit of truth requires us scientists to expose the harmful impact of prejudicial beliefs upon the progress of humanity. When Darwin published his Theory of Evolution based on his findings and other already existing data concerning natural selection, Christian fundamentalists could not gobble it either, but eventually Christianity embraced evolution over creationism. Likewise now is the time for another revolutionary idea to reign over the psyche of the thinking society, it is that every single experience of human existence including those that created modern religions in the first place are all products of natural neurological processes within the brain. Accepting this as an incontrovertible fact of life, would be the first step towards genuine progress in the path of both intellectual and emotional development. This development is concerned with the wellbeing of the human self and the human society, rather than any imaginary figure.(less)

Peace and War are two sides of the same coin. Where there is peace, there will be war - where there is war there will be peace. War is only the making of peace. This war does not necessarily have to be external. In most cases, the real war is internal, which means, it takes place within the human mind - within you. One way or another, war will keep on festering on this planet, until humanity be... Read more of this blog post »

“Biological instincts are the key to understanding how every single human being is wired. The marvelous interplay of various brain circuits creates our instinctual reality of the daily life. If you’re conscious about the fact that there lies a complex yet vividly beautiful brain circuit mechanism behind every single impulse of your daily emotions, then you can choose how to react upon each of those impulses. You can thus program your behavioral response in a certain situation.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love Sutra: The Neuroscientific Manual of Love
